The world is immeasurably vast. Continents, islands, caves… it surely took ages before all of that was explored. And even after all that, one would not be surprised if there was still more. Mysterious that yet lied unsolved and locations that were never gazed on by human’s eyes. But in the end, all of that amounted to absolutely nothing. Even all of that was but the tiniest dot in the plane of existence where all known dimensions existed. But why would Noheme think about something like this, something that seemingly made no sense at all? She received another message. One that was very similar to the one she received from Athene, a researcher in Neutral Grounds. Back then, she was tasked to destroy the great nightmare, as she learned about yet another world called Dreamland. It was a long and treacherous journey. And for some reason, the venomous goddess had a bad feeling this one would be very similar in that manner. Something she would not enjoy all that much, yet probably had to experience. After all, the letter that managed to get to her had some rather… uncomfortable information. And as the girl laid in the grass beneath the pleasantly warm sun, another figure approached her. A figure now very familiar. A girl with long, silver hair and blue eyes. ”Leila...” Noheme’s voice still sounded rather melancholy. And who could blame her? No one could recover from a great loss that quickly, it was simply impossible. And they both knew it, which was why the sister did not try to confront her about it all.
”You were making some scary faces as you were reading that… I mean, scarier than usual. Are we in trouble again?” Trouble as in damage to another’s property. A little problem that Leila ran into several times when she was a full-time mage. Well, she still was one. But her powers diminished greatly after her revival, which meant that she would rather stick with her big sister instead of running off on her own. But even then, she was still more than capable of fighting and defending herself, perhaps even capable of completely some jobs on her own. She actually wished to test that little theory of hers, but not now. Another time. For there were problems ahead that they had to solve as soon as possible. Not to mention that the Eden’s mage was simply not quite ready yet to face everyone who thought that she was long dead. Especially the wind witch that she fell in love with. The one that she… well, her feelings were still complex as it would appear. But what fun would it be if one’s feelings were just simple? None at all, most likely. Complexity was something that living beings seeked, for simple things were nothing short of boring. And boring was bad for anything that was alive, humans and gods alike. Even if some would not admit it, claiming that they enjoy peaceful life more. But in their hearts, everyone craved for adventure. Some more, some less. That was simply how things were, not something you could exactly change very easily.
